#BookReview: Engaging the Enemy by Reese Ryan | @ReeseRyanWrites #BourbonBrothers #HonMagPR


An ambitious heir will do whatever it takes to be the next CEO, even play fake fiancé to his childhood nemesis.

“That’s the deal, Abbott. Take it…or leave it.”

How far will an ambitious heir go to secure his future?

Parker Abbott will do whatever it takes to be the next CEO of King’s Finest Distillery, even play fake fiancé to his childhood nemesis, Kayleigh Jemison. Yet as he and the fiery redhead get reacquainted, sparks fly and real passion emerges. But when her ex wants a second chance, who will Kayleigh choose?


Engaging the Enemy is book three of the Bourbon Brothers series by Reese Ryan. I haven't read the first two, and although this is a standalone, the heroine from book one features quite a bit and the references to book one definitely make me want to read book one.

The story combines both an enemies-to-lovers and a friends-to-lovers tropes, since Kayleigh and Parker used to be best friends until he did something to lose her trust. This is a relatively uncomplicated story where the hero and heroine come to a mutually beneficially agreement, expecting to come out at the end of it with a win-win. After all, they hate each other. 

However, as the story progresses, they rediscover the things that make them a perfect fit. Their romance is very sweet. Parker wasn't your usual alpha billionaire hero. He's a nerd, and although he keeps his body in good physical form, he's not outdoorsy. I enjoyed having the tables turned where the heroine was rather more active in that regard. 

At the end of the story, some truths are revealed that bring healing and peace to Kayleigh, and also redeems the rest of the Abbott family in her eyes.

Lovers of sweet romance will love this sweet read with the right mix of plot, romance and glamour.
